Tibet and Silk Road Tour
The Silk Road, together with Ancient Tea Horse Route, is a passage of great importance between the east and the west exchange in ancient time. It has profound impact on both sides’ culture, economy, and religion. Many villages and towns mushroomed as a result of the vibrant business activities and exchange on these ancient routes. Though some failed to stand the test of time and went to ruin, others survived and prospered. Travelling along these two ancient business routes will make you understand the profundity of Chinese culture as if traveling back to ancient time.
